CloudMDE 2012: First International Workshop on Model-Driven Engineering 
on and for the Cloud

Final Call for Papers

2-3 July 2012, Lyngby, Denmark

Co-located with ECMFA 2012

Cloud computing is enormously promising in terms of providing scalable 
and elastic infrastructure for applications; MDE is enormously promising 
in terms of automating tedious or error prone parts of systems 
engineering. There is potential in identifying synergies between MDE and 
cloud computing; this is the focus of the workshop.

Workshop Goals:

We aim to bring together researchers and practitioners working in MDE or 
cloud computing, who are interested in identifying, developing or 
building on existing synergies. We aim to identify opportunities for 
using MDE to support the development of cloud-based applications (MDE 
for the cloud), as well as opportunities for using cloud infrastructure 
to enable MDE in new and novel ways (MDE in the cloud).


- Metamodels and novel domain-specific languages to support development 
of cloud-based applications.

- Modelling and metamodelling of cloud platforms.

- Model transformation for cloud-based applications.

- Model-to-text transformations for specific cloud platforms.

- Experience reports of deploying MDE tools and technologies on the cloud.

- Novel applications of MDE enabled by use of cloud platforms.

- Approaches to enabling “modelling as a service”.

- Semantic annotation techniques and descriptions of modelling services.

- Approaches for modelling service matching.

- Scalability issues for MDE in the cloud.

- Methods and experience reports focusing on model-based 
interoperability between cloud platforms/vendors.

- Cloud-specific development scenarios enabled by or enriched by use of 

- Specific non-functional cloud concerns (e.g., security, information 
governance) that may be addressed by MDE principles or practices.

- Case studies and experience reports.

- Position statements setting a research agenda for MDE in/for the cloud.
